The Frog Pond is in the Choccolocco State Forest at the intersection of the Joseph Springs Motorway (USFS Rd. 522) and AL Highway 9. The site is approximately 10 minutes from Anniston, Oxford, Jacksonville and Heflin. It is 1/8 mile south of White Plains Elementary School.
Turn onto the hard-packed dirt road (Joseph Springs Motorway) and travel east 0.2 miles. On the left, you will find small gravel parking area, a gate between parking and trail, and a short nature trail that will lead you to a wetland boardwalk and an adjoining 14 foot tall observation tower. Watch the trail carefully and be sure to turn left each time the trail forks. No fee unless participating in guided program. Programs usually offered first Saturdays March - May at 7 pm. $5 per person.
